Oh, hey, it turns out I can despise these people even more!

oh shut up wil wheaton

The fuck you mad about. Look at this beautiful family capturing images of their gorgeous baby. Really what the fuck are you mad about wil wheaton

please calm down wil wheaton

like im not even really sure what the issue is? it’s 2014 this could be a scene from like any even marginally well off home in america. using iphones & ipads to take pictures of your family is like a wholly regular activity

wil wheaton why are u such an angry nerd rn

wil wheaton pissed off that his relevance ended in 1990 and that he looks like the dude who goes to conventions and stares too long at female cosplayers

im very offended by this picture of a couple photographing their child, either commission hand-drawn portraits of your infant like we did in the Victorian era or get the fuck out

wil wheaton IS the dude who goes to conventions and stares too long at female cosplayers

It’s the aesthetics of the piece.  A mirror-covered nursery, a professional photograph of an ipad photo of a cellphone selfie of a fox fur-clad mother holding the baby of a reality TV star and a man who makes his life about proclaiming his greatness.  It is self-absorption for the purpose of mass consumption.  ”Marginally well off” people do not wear fox stoles to hold their babies in nurseries that appear to be larger than some people’s apartments, decorated with nothing that says ‘child’ and everything that says ‘someone was paid tens of thousands of dollars to decorate this space.’  
It is not the act of photographing their child.  Nobody cares if someone is using an iPad or a cellphone to take a photo of a mother and child.  It is the act of triple-photographing their child for the purpose of celebrity worship that is irksome about this piece.  

Aesthetics can be argued, I’ll give you that.  It’s from a Vogue photoshoot, which has its own aesthetics.  What I’m reacting to though is the hate.  The photo is enough to make Wheaton (also a celebrity) “despise” them even more?  I know the couple is controversial, but really, Wheaton?  Did Kanye kick his puppy or something?   Did Wheaton ask Kim out on a date and get rejected?  IMO it’s an overreaction on his part.

Holy shit wow.

It’s a high fashion photo shoot. Did you think the stylists were going to dress them in Adidas tracksuits and a pair of Yeezys? The fucking cover of the magazine was hashtagged with “the world’s most talked about couple”. The shoot here exemplifies the social media world of selfies and prepared selfies and how we consume that media. Or do you want to tell Anna Wintour that she doesn’t know how to sell magazines?

Check West’s social media accounts. Do you see any selfies or photos of his daughter? Check Kim’s reality tv show. Is the child on the show or being exploited? The answer to that is no. These parents strictly control the media flow regarding their daughter because they are concerned parents. Tell me how many selfies do you post Wil Wheaton? What about your wife? How many pictures and Vines of your dog are floating around the internet? Who the fuck are you to judge a successful couple that has to deal with intrusive media on a daily basis if they want to leave their home? Who has racial slurs hurled at them in a doctor’s office? What a bunch of fucking privilege you’ve got. 

And to address the user opining on the aesthetics of the piece? “A man who makes his life about proclaiming his greatness?” Have you been to a Kanye West concert? Have you listened to an album? He creates art that transforms and defines. He uplifts the listener. His “rants” during the Yeezus tour weren’t about declaring himself great. They were pointing out the doors he’s broken down and the doors he will continue to knock on until they are open to him, you, and me.  Can a black man not declare he’s great? Can this man refuse to be pigeon-holed as only a rapper or a producer when he so clearly has the resources and the talent to do more? He’s a mogul and I’m so sorry the concept of black excellence is hard for you to deal with. On the other side of this equation you have a reality television star, entrepreneur, and businesswoman that was born from the fires of a sex scandal/tape. A lot of people would have quit when a breach of trust like that happens, but Kim didn’t. She created not only a brand for herself but for the Kardashian family that’s generated wealth and profit. She refused to be defined by a poorly lit sex tape Brandy’s little brother and instead has become, like it or not, a tastemaker and a fashion icon.

So before you talk to me about aesthetics, you tell me why an accomplished black man can’t want more. Before you talk to me about aesthetics tell me why a woman can’t become a confident and successful entrepreneur. I’d like to hear that. 

And Wil Wheaton? Jealousy is unattractive. 


Oh horse shit, I dont care if they’re black purple or plaid. Media whores are media whores, I’m with Wil, hate these selfie taking irrelevent losers.

I can’t tell if you’re willfully ignorant or just plain old ignorant.It’s a goddamn magazine spread photographed by Annie Leibovitz, not a selfie. Also by your logic every single celebrity/person of interest on a magazine cover, ad campaign, or news segment is heretofore a media whore. Cool. Noted.

I’m so tired of straightening my hair. The problem with LA is that there’s no humidity to help tighten my waves into curls, BUT I’m using a “beach” creme and it’s essentially turned my waves into loose spirals a la IM2 Natasha and I’m about 100% okay with this development.

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem…
